No that was Lenny Godber


No, Godber had previously got an O level in Geography before being sent to Slade Prison. You'll thank me for that if it ever comes up in a pub quiz.


Noted. :lol:

Re: New Manager

I have nothing against foreign managers and if and when things get sorted i truly believe a foreign manager would be the best approach for reading football club. However we are in a bit of a pickle at the moment and need something different which is why i also would like to see either Parky or Gare...

Re: New Manager

Closer to home for him though and we have no idea how much he is on either. Depends on his motives I guess. If he is a football man then it is a no brainer for him. Quite a good beard to be fair. OMA, if you were a manager would you be suit, tracksuit, bench coat, polo or other? Fantastic question ...

Re: New Manager

Well if it is Parky then good luck to him, but wrong person at the wrong time. I am so frustrated with what I have seen for the past few years and will say a lot of things that will wind up the faithful who sit at their keyboard rather than at the ground watching every game. For once I can see adva...

Re: New Manager

I think parky would do a decent, if not particularly inspiring job I’d back him to get a bit of spirit going and sort out the short term issues. Can’t see our mid term ambition being any higher than mid table with him in charge though Would see him as a bit of a Pardew type - motivator but a bit la...

Re: The Local Journo Thread

my favourite, Russell Kempson has understood how relegation works: 'Royals hover dangerously above the relegation zone this season – out of it on goal difference – and, let’s face it, they avoided the drop last term only because there were three teams worse than them.' He's such a miserable oxf*rd!

Re: New Manager

Pearson would be my choice Alison? You can’t possibly mean Nigel :shock: Need someone to get these players in check, someone with authority who knows how to get out the league. All good appointing someone to keep us up but not really thinking long term. Pearson doesn't get players in check, he alie...

Re: New Manager

Was having beer in Southern Spain last week, and was told that Chris Coleman was being lined up, this information came from someone high up the chain. I have no reason to think it was ball shit, I did spit my beer out at this prospect. I hope it is balls because I can't think of a much worse choice...

The giant Crumpet for me, but I'm fascinated to see how Scott Marshall does in the interim.

Re: New Manager

End of the day they make the call though? If he suggests a name they don't agree with (and I can see them being cautious with this appointment) they can veto right? How much knowledge of the English game do you think they have though? I've also not heard of many instances of the owners at a club ap...
